You let the freon out. Hundreds of dollars to fix. And, no. Half the machine won't work because you let ALL of the freon out.

Hi, unfortunate, sorry to hear that, but it could be repaired, you should immediately dried up water/ice around punctured area, prevent water/ moisture entering punctured area (evaporator. lines), it's one of the worst thing, that could happened to any refrigeration system, it will be costly to repaired, if water get into your evaporator lines, compressor oil have to be replaced, evaporator will need to be flush out, repair puncture, change filter drier, it's better to replace compressor, vacuum system for about 2hrs. then recharge. it's better to use welding/ soldering, to repair punctured line, epoxy repair kit can be used to repair punctured (evaporator) lines . you will have to call a mechanic, if very little water entered punctured( evaporator) lines, then flushing of evaporator, (internal cleaning of lines (tube) changing of filter drier, with overnight vacuuming will do the job. take note, job like this, cannot be guaranteed. check cost for repairs, sometimes it's better to purchase a new one, and save yourself some headaches.next time never use sharp instruments in your freezer, it happened to me sometimes, it's what you get your hands on, what's available at the moment, good luck.

SOURCE: sometimes the refidgerator freezes and then leaks

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question. Mike

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Danby upright freezer plugged in a few hours ago, but coils on back are hot


If you are talking about the black condenser coli on the back of the fridge it is hot because the refrigerant is pulling all of the heat out of the fridge and trying to deposit it outside of the box. This is called hot box pull down. When the temperature inside the fridge comes down and you have product in it the coil on the back will become much cooler during operation. So if you are wondering it is nothing to be worried about, perfectly normal.

Red light on my full size Danby freezer is flashing what does that mean


I am a representative of Danby and would be happy to answer your question.
Not knowing the model number of your freezer, I can tell you that in general the little red light outside the freezer is an indicator light showing that there is electric power coming into the unit. It has nothing to do with the sealed system and the unit will continue to operate normally.
This indicator light is as strong as a Christmas light and there is no need to be fixed or replaced.
If you have any further questions please contact our consumer service department at 1-800-263-2629 and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.

Model A3006F2D. doesn't seem to be draining. is there a drain hole?


N0 there is not drain hole. Newer A/C units throw the condensation water up to the hot condenser coils outside to help cool down the coils.

I want to make a kegerator out of this. But does anyone know where the coils are in the unit.


Plug the freezer in a let it run.
After a short while you will see frost lines inside the freezer.
There will be corresponding hot areas outside the freezer if you feel along the outside of the freezer.
The frost lines and hot areas are your coil routing.
You would tap your holes between coils.

Can a refrigerator freezer be fixed if a hole was poked in the coil in the freezer?


Well, technically yes, but the cost is generally prohibitive. It is NOT a do it yourself job. (must be certified to work with refrigerants, have the specialty tools, and know what you are doing, and then it's still a lot of work and $$$)
